For the new year I will change my signature to my real name, Care, rather than Cuidado, which I have used for decades. There are a whole lot of Cuidados out there and even JustPictureIts. Care is an unusual enough name that there should not be many other photographers using it. I may come out further to include my last name but it is unlikely to happen soon.
So, you can call me by my real name, Care, but I would imagine Mary will persist for a while.
There are probably things in the lineup with Cuidado on them and I will continue to use old images with that nom de plume. Cuidado came about in 1981, the first time I went to Mexico and translated my name in the dictionary. Cuidado means care but also means careful and danger which are pretty hard to associate with me.
This is the opening music from a telenovella.
